|Any Leader Who Allows Xenophobic Attacks To Happen Not Fit To Lead – Obasanjo by Nobody: 9:04am On Mar 06, 2017|
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has slammed African countries over xenophobic attacks.
He declared that leaders of such countries were unfit to rule.
Obasanjo, who said this during an interview on Liberty Radio, Kaduna on Saturday, chided South African leaders for allowing attacks on other African citizens to continue unabated.
According to him, if African leaders should encourage attacks, especially against Africans, it would be calamitous for them (South Africans) and the entire continent.
Obasanjo said, “No African country can attain development in isolation. They must move together as a continent if the desired development is to be achieved.
“What all African countries must remember is that Nigeria fought for the decolonisation of most of the African countries. But, whether anyone remembers what Nigeria did for the decolonisation of African countries or not is not even an issue, the issue is that any African must not be treated as unwanted in any part of Africa.
“Any leader who allows xenophobic attacks to happen under his watch is not fit to be an African leader.
“If youths are behaving childishly, then, what is the leadership doing? It is understandable to see children behaving childishly, but if the leaders also behave childishly, that is a calamity for that country and for Africa.”
On the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, the former President noted that he built a Church and a Mosque in the library because as a leader, he should lead by example.
He condemned a situation where people killed in the name of religion, saying “anyone who kills in the name of religion is an enemy of God.”
